August has announced that users of its August Doorbell Cam Pro and Doorbell Cam will now get twenty four hours of free cloud video storage.
We’re giving all August Doorbell Cam Pro and Doorbell Cam owners 24 hours of video storage free with our new, Basic August Video Recording subscription. This lets you replay any missed moment from the last 24 hours within the August app. Need more than 24 hours of video storage? Upgrade to the Premium Video Recording subscription to store videos for up to 30 days for $4.99 per month or $49.99 for a one-year plan.
“We believe video recording is such an important feature for video doorbells that we are adding 24 hours of video recording, for free, with both of our Doorbell Cams,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home. “Now if you miss a motion notification or experience a porch pirate walking off with a package from your doorstep, you can access and review the stored video from the August app.”
The Doorbell Cam Pro includes an integrated floodlight which gives you full-color night-time video rather than the typical grainy video of an infrared camera. In addition to the integrated floodlight, Doorbell Cam Pro includes a feature called HindSight. HindSight constantly monitors your doorway and captures the moments before a motion alert, even if the doorbell is not pressed. This ensures that the recording includes the entire event, rather than capturing a person walking away, for example.
Notably, August's announcement comes following Amazon's acquisition of rival doorbell maker Ring. More details here.
